...Accuracy performances aside, it’s what else is present within the Chronomaster AQ 4020-54Y that lights this watch up. To highlight its Japanese origins, Citizen has used washi paper on its dial. Washi paper, a hand-processed traditional Japanese paper-making craft, is produced using the inner bark from three types of Japanese flora and is recognised as a UNESCO cultural heritage. It’s still found today in various Japanese traditions and is used internationally in book mending and conservation. It’s a hardier paper fibre and Citizen has found a way to treat it and use it as a dial."
